Advent Course: after 4 intense weeks, we've decided to take a break during December and reconvene on Wednesday 18th January.
Please ignore the December dates you may see on other publicity!

Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th December: Christmas Tree Festival at St Mary’s Church, Brading, all are welcome.

St Peter’s Advent Service: The church glowed with Christmas lights and 200 lit candles; the Church Hall filled with the tempting aroma of home-made mince pies and mulled wine ensuring a warm welcome to all who marked the beginning of Advent at St Peter’s Church, Seaview. Grateful thanks to all who attended and to the many volunteers who contributed to help make this such a happy and memorable event.
